Since my blog is a guide to random things... here is a nice bash script to extract RPMs to a directory named after them self where the RPM can be located anywhere... that is, relative to the current directory or exact path

# This script is in the public domain.
# A simple script to extract RPM files automagically
# Honestly... why isn't this feature built into
# the rpm tools?! unless I missed something...
